    I have been working at Achievers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    All of the employees are very nice and willing to help. The company is growing fast so there is lots to do, and as a result I get to work with lots of different teams and get a glimpse into their worlds. At my last company, I was stuck in one job which got to be pretty boring pretty quickly. I like how much fun everyone seems to have. The new CEO seems to be a great cultural fit and has a great background. Love the team events.

    Cons

    I guess all companies have their pluses and minuses, but nothing really sticks out as a "con."

    Advice to Management

    This seems like a great market segment in which we can have a huge impact as a company. Let's grab as much market share as we can!

    I have been working at Achievers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Achievers is a great place to work for a young person. Here are some listed pros: - Most people are very nice, positive and inclusive - Company CULTure is fantastic; there is always something to get involved in whether it be community service opportunities, yoga, or drinks to celebrate a teammate's birthday - Fully stocked bar - Free lunch every day ordered via Seamless - The work itself is fun and positive because the company sells a great product - Leaders are approachable and kind

    Cons

    While Achievers is a lot of fun, it's a lot of work too... - Work tends to pile up - it ain't a walk in the park to work here. - Not enough people for number of tasks and amount of work - Because things are constantly changing, much of the work is last-minute tasks with close deadlines - Pay isn't great - Work can be disorganized at times The biggest point here is, like previous comments mentioned, Achievers has a start-up culture... for better or for worse. It's a lot of fun, but you can't have too much fun because at the end of the day, you've got deadlines.

    I have been working at Achievers full-time

    Pros

    Fast paced workplace, that is leading the space for employee engagement. Achievers is full of smart people who are willing to do what needs to be done to make an impact.

    Cons

    New executive team seems disconnected to the vision of the company. A lot time is spent talking in circles instead of using existing employees as a knowledge center.

    Advice to Management

    Don't loose touch with where the company was going before you got here, empower us don't micro manage us.

    Pros

    Great people. Super helpful environment. The product and senior leadership are both solid.

    Cons

    No set career path, or it is always in flux. They are a growing company and a startup, so things will continue to be rapidly changing. The pay is near the top of the range for my position, but it isn't the very best.

    I have been working at Achievers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people and culture really make Achievers a wonderful place to work. The hiring process ensures positive, passionate people find work here, and it really makes day-to-day work much nicer. The small company feel makes everyone feel part of family, with a goal we all believe in.

    Cons

    While Achievers often promotes itself as having great opportunities to further your career, the reality is that many employees are not being promoted (arguably) when they should be. It is not uncommon for people to leave shortly after a promotion, possibly because the were already looking elsewhere. Further, salary increases are negligible, so argue for a good salary up front.

    Advice to Management

    It is okay to provide negative feedback

    Pros

    Awesome people and real sense of one team.

    Cons

    Recently acquired by Blackhawk Network - real worry that culture will be lost as BH is not a software company.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to culture.
